Embrace music — That is the motto we have adopted. In other words, we want to help you to make music an integral part of your life.
Music is all around us these days; it stimulates us more intensely and prevalently than ever before. But do we relate to it passively or actively? Are we merely consumers or makers of music as well?
We at EMB know that making music brings joy. That joy is multiplied and shared by playing to others. What’s more, making music develops individual values, such as concentration, openness, sensitivity, collaboration, and concern for others.
Our aim is to allow as many people of all ages to experience the wonder and value of music.
Of the numerous forms of collective music-making, one of the most rewarding is chamber music.
Its value is derived not only from the more complex musical texture, but from the challenge and pleasure of making music together. Moreover, it has benefits in terms of socialized thinking because it requires players to accept each other musically and cooperate to produce music.
As such, chamber music has gained a significant role in music education and this has been recognized by most music schools in the world. Music publishers, including Editio Musica Budapest, have also produced a wide range of scores.
Hungarian musicians have won recognition among countries with long-established musical cultures because of the high quality of Hungarian music education. Music teachers have produced excellent tutors and collections of character pieces, and at the same time they have paid attention to chamber music playing as well.
The series presented here have proved their value over the years in terms of both quality and popularity. This experience gives us the courage to recommend them wholeheartedly and enthusiastically not only to teachers and students but to amateur musicians as well.
